Waffle House is a death trap

Dear Waffle House,
that’s another reason why I don’t eat at your establishments

Concealed means concealed.
Here in NC, it’s illegal to carry in any establishment that forbids firearms. If it’s posted, it’s illegal to enter; and elsewhere, if the staff asks you to leave, it’s trespassing to stay. Be a grown-up about it.

This is neither sermon, lecture, nor legal advice — just sayin’…
Story-2 (like other stories, no mention of the gun-free-zone thing)

Here’s the hero,
and here’s the scumbag.
Yep, these people exist, and some ask why we “need” self-defense weapons.

Nabbed ‘im!
Now, put his father in the same lifer prison cell.

    Concealed means just that… concealed, hidden from view. What stays in your holster under cover no matter where you go or what venue you chose to visit stays concealed, unnoticed in your holster. If you need to display it to save your life or others deal with the consequences later.

    Until the No-Gun venues begin to frisk their patrons upon entering just do what you gotta do.

    And now the gun grabbers are saying because an unarmed stopped the armed freak, nobody really neeeeeeeeeds a gun. Logic by stream of consciousness.

    ^ Yep,
    I suspect that an armed patron might have saved at least one of those lives lost and/or saved another handful (and kith/kin) the pain and inconveniences associated with being in critical condition right now.

    “…I pulled it away and threw it over the bar.”
    Thank goodness for Mr. Shaw. He was a Man, not a cowering snowflake. I only wish he could have used the rifle to beat the tar out of that punk rather than throw it over the bar.

    ^ Yeah, the beating part, although, legally, revenge/retribution after the threat ends is not part of self-defense.
    Tossing the weapon removes “deadly” from a violent situation (you don’t want the perp to regain possession of his weapon), and that’s job#1. Reckon our hero’s a savvy feller for doin’ it the way he did.

    (What? Nope, not wrestlin’ with a guy without pants on… his or mine. Pretty sure cops know how to handle that better’n I do, anyway… and they have gloves.)

    A coupla things bother me…

    One – the Breitbart article STILL uses terms like “suspect” and “allegedly”. Piss on that – just tell us the truth and spare us the “we don’t want to rush to judgement” bullshit.

    Second, if the perp (a much better term than “suspect”) had been disarmed, howinhell was he able to just run away? How many other people just sat there watching him instead of helping tackle the SOB?
    Bloody useless Eloi….

    ^ If a news organization implies someone who hasn’t been convicted yet is guilty of a crime, they can be sued for libel.

    Regarding Reinking the father:
    “… a review of Illinois and Tennessee state law shows it’s likely Travis Reinking and his father did not violate any state firearms laws before Travis Reinking opened fire early Sunday.”

    Guns taken away in Illinois by law enforcement and returned to son by his father might not break Tennessee law?
    Geddafugouttahere! Screw that nickel-dime weasel wording over misdemeanors.

    If Reinking’s father returned the guns to his mentally defective, law breaking son after the law took them away, as far as I’m concerned, the father is a felon, an accessory to murder, among other things.
    What was that chant? “Lock him up!”

    Even if Tennessee can’t make a criminal case against the father, I’ll betcha the victims’ families can mount a helluva civil case.

    ^ If I recall,
    it’s a Federal crime to knowingly transfer a firearm to someone prohibited from buying one (sale or gift).
    I think the old man is in serious trouble, civilly and criminally.
